still no lawsuits on the 20-30 females that claim trump sexually molested them or raped them even as young as 13 years old. Again trump the serial pathological liar said he would sue them.

again he has been involved in over 3500 lawsuits, amazing how the media does not determine if he holds the record for any american since the birth of the nation.

again trump just backed Oliely saying he should not settle...

Both sides blame Trump in case about campaign-season violence
04/17/17 10:00 AM

By Steve Benen
Quote:
One of the more alarming aspects of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was his tacit embrace of violence as a legitimate tool at his rallies. In ways without precedent in modern American politics, the Republican candidate often seemed a little too eager to encourage vicious behavior.

After one protester at a Trump rally was punched by one of the candidate’s supporters, for example, Trump declared, “Maybe he deserved to get roughed up.” On other occasions, Trump promised to “pay for the legal fees” for supporters who “knock the hell” out of protesters.

And as we recently discussed, three protesters were physically assaulted at a Trump event in Kentucky in 2016, and they later filed suit, alleging the president bears some responsibility for encouraging the confrontation and insisting that inciting violence is not protected speech under the First Amendment.

A federal judge recently agreed to allow the case to proceed, and late Friday, the president’s attorneys argued that by virtue of winning the election, Trump was given immunity from lawsuits like these. The Washington Post reported:
“Mr. Trump is immune from suit because he is President of the United States,” his lawyers wrote Friday, rebutting a complaint filed by three protesters who claimed Trump incited a riot against them at a Louisville event in March 2016.

Trump’s team challenged the accusations – negligence and incitement to riot – on many other grounds, too. But a federal judge already rejected their attempt to have the lawsuit thrown out earlier this month.
As it turns out, the protesters who were assaulted in Kentucky didn’t just sue Trump; they’re also seeking damages against one of the Trump supporters who allegedly assaulted them.

And that’s where the story gets even more interesting.

Alvin Bamberger, who was seen on video shoving the protesters at the March 2016 rally, is defending himself in the same litigation, and his attorney argued on Friday that the plaintiffs are largely correct about Trump’s culpability.

Bamberger’s lawyer wrote said his client “would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump Campaign’s specific urging and inspiration.” As the Post’s report added, Bamberger also accepted as true the plaintiff’s claims that Trump’s speech “was calculated to incite violence” against the protesters. In fact, Bamberger wants Trump to pay his damages if the case goes against him.

In other words, the people who were assaulted and one of the people accused of doing the assaulting are effectively saying the same thing: “Yep, Trump’s to blame.”

As for Trump’s lawyers claiming immunity “because he is president of the United States,” no one seriously expects that argument to work.

It’s a case worth watching, especially if/when the case enters the deposition phase.

Postscript: In February 2016, the month before the event in Louisville, Trump told an Iowa crowd, “So if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of him, would you? Seriously, okay, just knock the hell. I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees; I promise, I promise.” Keep this quote in mind as the case proceeds.

Second Postscript: All of this is unfolding, by the way, while Trump’s lawyers also try to shield him from a defamation civil suit, filed by one of the women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

TRUMP BUSINESS PARTNER ACCUSED OF INVOLVEMENT IN DUTCH-BASED MONEY LAUNDERING SCHEME

Quote:

Dutch letter box companies implicated in million-dollar fraud

The American real estate development company Bayrock, through which Donald Trump constructed hotels and apartment complexes, used Dutch letter box companies in a network suspected of being involved in money laundering. A ZEMBLA investigation suggests that Bayrock siphoned off $1.5 million dollars by setting up a corporate structure in the Netherlands in 2007. In New York, Bayrock also stands accused of large-scale tax fraud. This incriminating information could place Donald Trump in an extremely difficult position, claims attorney F. Oberlander, who is prosecuting Bayrock on behalf of the State of New York: “The maximum jail term would be 30 years. So you’re in really serious trouble.”

In 2005, Donald Trump became 18% owner of an hotel-condominium known as Trump SoHo. Bayrock, the other owner, is accused of perpetrating fraud on a grand scale through, among other things, Trump SoHo. According to US law, this means that Trump is jointly liable for Bayrock’s criminal activities. Oberlander concludes:
“Anybody running a business through a pattern of crime is guilty of racketeering. Anybody knowing what they’re doing and are helping is guilty of racketeering conspiracy. They go to jail.”

All Bayrock wants is to make clear to ZEMBLA that the Dutch corporate construction was established on the advice of an external legal counsel. ZEMBLA discovers that the firm in question is Bracewell & Giuliani. Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, and part owner of the law firm at the time, is also a Trump confidante. ZEMBLA has access to correspondence between the law firm and the Dutch director of a trust company in Amsterdam, which leaves no doubt as to the ultimate beneficiary owners of the Dutch business construction: the director of Bayrock and the Khrapunov family from Kazakhstan.

Viktor Khrapunov is a fugitive ex-mayor and governor from Kazakhstan. The Kazakhstan government accuses Khrapunov of embezzling hundreds of millions of state assets. In 2007, Bayrock and the Khrapunov family founded the Dutch joint venture KazBay B.V. ZEMBLA has copies of the act of incorporation, bank statements and internal communications showing how the suspected money laundering scheme was set up. “It was designed to get millions of dollars out of New York into Europe. Through KazBay. KazBay was just a conduit”, asserts attorney Oberlander.

The Dutch director of KazBay B.V. tells ZEMBLA that he has no knowledge of his clients’ dubious backgrounds. In 2007, the year that the Dutch letter box companies were established, Viktor Khrapunov’s alleged criminal dealings become public knowledge. Around the same time, it also becomes clear that Felix Sater, one of the Bayrock owners, has concealed his criminal past and mafia connections.

For years, the Dutch Central Bank has been concerned that Dutch trust companies are failing to comply with legislation. Over half of the companies investigated by the Dutch Central Bank are in breach of the regulations, such as subjecting their clients to rigorous screening. Investigations performed by the supervisory body reveal that hundreds of politicians from Russia and Kazakhstan make use of Dutch trust companies. Frank Elderson, director of the Dutch Central Bank: "There are no legal stipulations forcing you to do business with a former political hot-shot from Russia or any other high risk nation."

Six months ago, the Financial Times reported that, in 2013, the Khrapunov family had bought three apartments in Trump SoHo to the tune of 3.1 million dollars. A sale from which Trump benefitted as joint owner. The White House, the Trump Organization and Viktor Khrapunov decline to answer ZEMBLA’s questions. In the episode ‘The Dubious Friends of Donald Trump: Part 1 – the Russians’, ZEMBLA explores the possible implications of these shady business dealings for the United States’ 45th president.

Lawsuit Accuses Donald Trump Of Illegally Destroying White House Records
Quote:

the suit — filed Thursday against Trump and the Executive Office of the President by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and the National Security Archive — focuses on an “auto-delete” app reportedly being used for messages sent from the White House that erase messages after they’re read.

Such communications could involve correspondence among the president, aides, advisers, contractors, lobbyists and others. They’re part of a “historical record” that belongs to the public and must be preserved, as mandated by the Presidential Records Act of 2014, notes the suit, which was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The law requires the preservation of communications in the White House and vice president’s office.

Yet “evidence suggests that President Trump and others within the White House are either ignoring or outright flouting these responsibilities,” the suit states.

Trump Loses "iTrump" Copyright Case to Amateur Lawyer

Quote:
Donnie is a bit of an extra angry boy; maybe it’s after losing the copyright to the name “iTrump”. Worse than that, the copyright authorities have cancelled the exclusive copyright on “Trump” in connection with entertainment services, including reality TV shows.

The case centered on smartphone app which teaches and emulates a trumpet.

(Tom) Scharfeld, who played in jazz ensembles while in college at MIT, is the founder of San Francisco-based Spoonjack LLC, a one-person firm that developed iTrump and iBone, which teaches the trombone. A lifelong trombone player, he wanted to design an intuitive and playable simulation of the instruments for the iPhone.
Scharfeld called the apps “iTrum” and “iTrom”, applied for name copyright and started to sell them on the Apple store in December 2010.

About a month later, he was stunned to receive a letter from Trump's lawyers demanding that he immediately rename his product. They said his use of the name diluted the quality of "the famous" Trump mark and tarnished "the goodwill and reputation that Mr. Trump has built over the years" from his books and reality television show, "The Apprentice."

Scharfeld refused, and Trump and the Trump Organization challenged his mark before the trademark board. Scharfeld dug in because he said Trump's lawyers were "100 percent wrong -- the word trump has other meanings [see Oxford English Dictionary under ‘fart’]." He pushed hard to prove that his trumpet application had nothing to do with Trump and wouldn't cause confusion.
Instead of caving in under the pressure from the Trump mafia organisation’s highly paid lawyers, Scharfeld hit back:

After defeating this claim, the developer then went on the attack.

And this resulted in the company losing a key trademark of its own last week.

On 11 August, the US Trademark Trial and Appeal Board cancelled the New York-headquartered company's exclusive right to use "Trump" in relation to entertainment services, including reality TV shows.

The ruling followed earlier victories by San Francisco-based Tom Scharfeld, in which he prevented the Trump Organization from owning the exclusive right to use "Trump" in connection with computer games, golf-related mobile apps and music streaming.
Even better, up against Trump’s lawyers, Scharfeld conducted his own case, having taught himself copyright law!

So it looks like even as the value of the Trump endorsement goes down, the scope of things he can slap his name on reduces. If you’d like to have a quick celebration, you can TrumpDonald — move the trumpet with your cursor and click to blow. 673 million trumps in his face already!

well the book via Bannon was released about trump and again he tried suing to have th book stopped from being released, not because it was not true but becuse he claims a violation of a confidentiality agreement that everyone must sign that works for him, that you can not say bad things about him.

ie in trump speak I am a rich entitled pussy grabbing trust fund kid and the truth can not be told about me.

Judge finalizes $25 million settlement in Trump’s fraud case
04/16/18 10:00 AM—UPDATED 04/16/18 11:42 AM
By Steve Benen
It took a while, but the Trump University fraud case officially reached its end last week. The political fallout, however, hasn’t quite run its course.

USA Today reported the other day on the end of the settlement agreement.

A federal judge finalized the $25 million settlement between President Trump and students of his now shuttered Trump University on Monday, with New York’s attorney general claiming “victims of Donald Trump’s fraudulent university will finally receive the relief they deserve.”

The order from U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel – the same Indiana-born judge Trump called biased because of his “Mexican heritage” – comes a year after he first approved the settlement. It marks the end of two class-action lawsuits and a civil lawsuit from New York accusing Trump of “swindling thousands of Americans out of millions of dollars through Trump University,” in the words of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The circumstances are nothing short of bizarre: a sitting president of the United States has written a check for $25 million to a group of Americans who credibly claimed that he ripped them off by perpetrating a fraud.

You know things are bad for a president when a story like this goes almost entirely unnoticed by the public, eclipsed by a dozen or so more pressing scandals.

Regardless, after keeping a close eye on this case for a long while, I think it’s a shame to see the case end – because I’ve long believed this is one of the underappreciated controversies of Trump’s recent career.

Indeed, as regular readers may recall, the finalized settlement agreement wasn’t supposed to happen at all – according to the president.


During the 2016 presidential race, Trump boasted during a debate, “This is a case I could have settled very easily, but I don’t settle cases very easily when I’m right.” After boasting that the Better Business Bureau gave Trump University an “A” rating – a claim that turned out to be a brazen lie – Trump added, “Again, I don’t settle cases. I don’t do it because that’s why I don’t get sued very often, because I don’t settle, unlike a lot of other people.” (The assertion that he doesn’t “get sued very often” also turned out to be a demonstrable falsehood.)

After the election Trump settled the case he said he’d never settle – shortly before he was supposed to take the stand in his own fraud case.

And what a case it was. The Washington Post reported in 2015 about students sometimes “max[ing] out their credit cards to pay tens of thousands of dollars for insider knowledge they believed could make them wealthy.”

What I’ve long found important about this story are the parallels between the unaccredited “school” and Trump’s rise to political power: a group of Americans, looking for easy solutions and wowed by a celebrity making too-good-to-be-true promises, put their faith in an accused scam artist, only to learn that Donald Trump had no intention of delivering on outlandish pledges that never really made any sense.

Rank-and-file voters, however, do not have the option of filing a class-action lawsuit.

As for the lingering consequences, the Dallas Morning News had a report the other day that stood out:

President Donald Trump named former Texas Deputy Attorney General David Morales on Tuesday to a trial bench in Corpus Christi. Morales had been recommended to the White House by Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz.

Morales made headlines during the presidential campaign when news outlets learned that in May 2010 the state’s consumer protection division had sought permission to pursue what it believed was a strong case against Trump and Trump University. Investigators asserted that Texas taxpayers had been bilked out of more than $2.6 million, and sought to file a $5.4 million lawsuit.

Morales rejected the recommendation. Texas dropped its investigation. Trump University voluntarily ceased operations in Texas.

Last week, Morales was apparently rewarded for his trouble.

Trump’s Former Personal Driver Sues Claiming Years Of Unpaid Overtime
The lawsuit accuses the billionaire of “an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement.”

By Ryan Grenoble

He was Donald Trump’s personal driver for 25 years ― and he’s pretty sure Trump took him for a ride.

Quote:
Chauffeur Noel Cintron filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization in the New York state court on Monday morning, seeking compensation for “thousands of hours” of allegedly unpaid overtime.

Due to the statute of limitations, Cintron is asking for just six years’ worth of overtime wages ― a total of about 3,300 hours. The lawsuit says he worked as many as 55 hours a week for Trump, earning a salary of $62,700 in 2003 and $68,000 in 2006, according to a copy of the suit obtained by HuffPost.

In 2010, the lawsuit contends, Cintron received a $7,000 raise to $75,000 per year, but only on the condition that he forfeit his health insurance, which cost the Trump Organization $17,866 per year.

“Donald Trump has proclaimed himself as a champion of working men and women, but nothing could be further from the truth,” Cintron’s lawyer Larry Hutcher said in an emailed statement. “Noel Cintron worked for him days, nights, and weekends, but year after year Trump refused to pay him the wages he had earned. A complete disregard for the rights of workers has defined his disgraceful record in business.”

Cintron was responsible for driving Donald Trump until the Secret Service took over those duties in 2016. He also drove other Trump family members and business associates, his lawyers say, and handled car maintenance and other “required tasks.”

Trump’s treatment of his driver reflected “an utterly callous display of unwarranted privilege and entitlement,” the lawsuit reads, describing his “exploitation” of Cintron as lacking “even a minimal sense of noblesse oblige.”

“[Cintron] was forced to work thousands of hours of overtime without compensation,” the lawsuit continues. “President Trump’s further callousness and cupidity is further demonstrated by the fact that while he is purportedly a billionaire, he has not given his personal driver a meaningful raise in over 12 years!”

Bloomberg notes that Cintron is a registered Republican, and public records show a man with the same name donated just under $1,000 to Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

A spokesperson for the Trump Organization disputed Cintron’s allegations and said the company never broke the law.
